Reading this thread was useful and timely, and I'm doing the following with respect to Flightstream:...

Re: Recommendation for wheel pants repair.

Glenn Lawler of Southtec Aviation at KRUQ in North Carolina repaired my wing tip recently. They did a great job.

Re: Cost of replacement wingtip

OK - an update: I have N787DM back, wingtip repaired and with a bright new pair of Whelen OR600 nav/strobe lights. My thanks to you, Dave - for suggesting I send the wingtip for repair to Glenn at Southtec, and to Rich , Rick and Tim for the helpful documentation. Glenn deemed the wingtip an “easy” ...
